But now I do.

To prove I attached two Java classes ( and and 
a build.xml where the Root class is the root of a classfileset which 
later is used in a jar task. Root holds a reference to Dependency.class:

  public Class dependency = Dependency.class;

Put the three files into a single folder and run

  build deps

See what's in the jar.


Notice that javac of course handles Dependency as a dependency of Root 
(parsing the source code). But not <classfileset...> can't.
